Did this video help you?

Jose Miguel: 6:24 freak me I thought my cat got injured...

Vinh Mai: i plan to buy kodiak gearslinger as for everyday to school, with 13in laptop and notebook to write and ipad air with otterbox defender case. will the bag fit these item? I also plan on travel oversea wonder what is max dimension of this as in when it got strech ouut when put stuff in. will it below 45in in total dimension. on side note. will this safe if get rain, Also between this and the sitka gearslinger which better choice for me

Ryan James Baliza: thanks for the review. i'm getting one.

Kray Z. Bitts: Wow; in florida, in the heat & for two days.....amazing (-ly dumb). Maxpedition is china made, noisy, heavy, stiff and generally PIA/Useless. In the end I notice you both were bald too, amazing...

Homer Welker: I want to carry my camera in mine as well. How did you make the camera cradle?

kbcal2: I wasnt sure which of the two bags to get until i found this vid. EXACTLY what i needed to put my mind at rest. Picking myself up a kodiak in the morning. keep up the reviews :)

David Kay: Does anybody know how long the shoulder strap can get? I am a big guy. Just wondering if I need the janus to go with it.

ScanMan1967: Scootch, when the Kodiak is loaded, does it wear on your shoulder/back being a slinger ? I'm thinking of getting this bag but where do you draw the line for a 2 strap backpack and a slinger ? Do you think I could do a night with ultralight gear (hammock, 64 oz hydration bladder, ultralight stove, etc) without killing my shoulders ?

USNERDOC: Great stuff guys and a very nice look at these versatile bags. Sootch, at some point I'd be interested in the comms your buddy is carrying. Keep up the good work!

Diopterman: So does Maxpedition pay you to do these reviews, or do they just give you the bags for free and *encourage* you to review them in the most positive way possible?

BHShaman: @agentspaz13 True, though the teardrop of the Monsoon makes it less appropriate for laptops, IPad, etc.

hinckleypoland: very nice sootch and your friend!

Christina Bartlett: Very Nice :) That area is beautiful

TheOtherEddie: @neo7779 Neo, Look in the 2 months ago comments to see a short description of how I made the cradle. Get some of the foam & go for it. God Luck! John

TheOtherEddie: @onelittledog I'm going to make a video of how I made the cradle, soon, so what my channel. John

GegBrown: Great review - you mentioned that you took the compression system off of the bag. Is it removable or did you have to cut off the straps?

TheOtherEddie: @TheOtherEddie Make 6'-1 1/2"...

richtherake: The audio in this video made me have to piss. Two thumbs up!

Gary Jordan: Cool, lots of storage but still small enough without being cumbersome.

TygerBlueEyes: What did your friend make to hold the cameras? I'm thinking about replacing my camera bag with a Kodak.

sootch00: @MrMindfreaker Hey Mike, He's a Professional Photographer : )

mrmonkeyman50: @TheOtherEddie Thanks for the reply. I wish you had shot the inside of the bag a bit longer. I keep trying to do a frame-by-frame portion of that video to take a look at it better. :o)

mrmonkeyman50: @TheOtherEddie I imagine others will be just as interested. You can either make a quick video with commentary of your bag (and I would be fascinated by it) or just string some pics together in a video here (most software will allow you to do that easily). That way you can link your video (and/or pics) to this vid as a "response" and have it as part of the permanent record. (Although I would prefer a video with your commentary if I have a choice!) THANKS!

sootch00: @FatDaddy4Fun Thanks Bro~ Yeah, that pack is big but so usable.

GuldenBattleSpur: The Kodiak gearslinger is a good investment and a suprise pakket ,also his little brother the Sitka gearslinger is also a good investment (both used in Afghanistan and Iraq,south America and other places) also excellent as a full first aid kit ,ideal to sit on a bus or train,and skilifts. excellent review (lot's of uses for it )

sootch00: @247wanderlust Yes, they see the power in the YouTube Market for sure. But they make awesome gear. I personally find it the best out there. Thanks~

mar87207: Where in the mountains did you take this?

1StepTooFar: Great job Sootch. The Kodiak is top notch. I speak highly of the Jumbo Versipack also. Maxpedition is good stuff! Love the scenery in your review.

TheOtherEddie: @mrmonkeyman50 It's pretty simple, but it works just fine The Kodiak worked out better than I expected. How can I send you some pics?

flipteezy: I'm also interested in making a cradle for 2 cameras.

Chuck Magee': I'm planning on ordering a Kodiak soon and I am right handed; an earlier post complained that the right shoulder did not feel natural for a right-handed user, but I often sling a backpack over my right shoulder. When I was a mail carrier I always carried my mailbag on my right shoulder as well, I seem to have better balance or control on my right shoulder in fact. So, in your opinion, is the right shoulder sling designed to be used by right handed people? Really enjoyed the video, nice setting!

Andy Jacobs: I'd be very interested in this also. I have just acquired a Kodiak and I have a Nikon DSLR with 18-55mm and 7-300mm lenses that I would like to be able to haul securely. Any information on the "cradle" and how it is mounted into the Kodiak would be much appreciated.

k3nm3ist3r: Heya Sootch! I just ordered a Kodiac in Black, going to molle a triple smg mag pouch onto the back for glock happy sticks, and strap a glock field knife to the strap.. this will be an urban E&E or "Get Home Bag".. been planning it out in my head for a while and was having trouble deciding between the Kodiac and the Sitka.. decided I'd rather go a little bigger than too small... thanks for the great Maxpedition reviews!

Justin Nemeti: I'm sure these bags are great for short hikes walking the dog, or even a lively jaunt out to the photo shoot. However the whole "one shoulder" strap is no good for any kind of long hike or major expedition. Unless it's lightly loaded you're in for some major back/ shoulder pain. Stick with a regular back back with waist and chest strap and carry your gun in a fanny pack or proper holster.

urbaniten: A bag of that size on one strap can't be comfortable.

boombox777: tactical camera draws...lol. You guys take your packs seriously don't ya. Nice review sootch. I just never liked sling bags like that, i like the standard two strap back packs for comfort. But the quality looks top notch and the compartments are nice too.

WaRB1RD217: what part of the florida trail were you on?

behind the line: i confused about what side the of shoulder the slinger should go on i am right handed????

mrmonkeyman50: Suggestion: This was a great unique review on HOW to use a Kodiak, not so much a review about the features of a Kodiak. You may want to rename the vid to "How to use a Kodiak" because it doesn't duplicate the other Kodiak reviews. More reviews in this style would be great and make watching something I would do even if I've already seen other reviews. Otherwise, it just gets lost with dozens of other Maxpedition reviews.

shawnwade302: Will a Kodiak gear Slinger fit my kids iPad and school books? My boy needs a good bag for school

krazy45cat: Great stuff !

Norton3139: Well done review. I am thinking of taking this pack to India on a 6mo long business trip.

aphex4000: nice video, sootch! I like the explanation/demonstration of its practical uses.

perfect7liberty: Chikai666: they make the same bag to slog over the left shoulder. It's called the S-type. And what's up with the 666??

greenback001: I just don't like sling packs. It just puts too much stress on one shoulder. Sling packs are specialized for unique hiking experiences, like hiking with no time to stop, which means you can pull it around front while not disrupting your stride. Good review but still don't like sling packs.

C Jack: no way it will fit all of your kids school stuff get something a little bigger

TheOtherEddie: @srvvlhm I still have about 12 more inched of the shoulder strap to extend, if I need to, but I am trying to go the other way!. I have a Janus, but I just slipped it over the shoulder strap. No need for the extension, at all. Be safe! John

Casey: Awesome review guys! I am planning to purchase a Kodiak for flight ops as well as to support my wife when on photos ops. I love your insert for the cameras. Could you provide me with some direction as to how you went about making it? Thanks guys, good job.

secretsquirrell13: Love my kodiak.

TheOtherEddie: @mrmonkeyman50 Hey Monk. I made the cradle out of some 2" thick white closed cell foam packaging material. The kind they ship computers in. I used a razor knife to cut holes large enough for the lenses & the glued them together to get the right depth. I then cut up an old sweat shirt & used the sleeves to line the tunnels for the lenses. It worked out nice. Good luck!
